Poland is a wonderful place to take a vacation, explore historic sites, enjoy another culture, and live a bit differently in this unique region in Europe. KLM Royal Dutch Airlines (KLM from here on out) is offering an amazing deal with incredible versatility, so that those on the West and the East coast can take advantage of an affordable, international trip.
This flight to Krakow, Poland means that you can experience beautiful castles, get on the river for tours, eat the local cuisine, and if you are a history buff, you can tour all of the sites that still show the scars from the second World War. Auschwitz-Birkenau is also located in Poland, and is a somber reminder of the past but also how it was overcome.
For a more upbeat trip, visit the beautiful Wawel Castle (where people have lived upon this site since the Paleolithic Age!): the Wieliczka Salt Mine with amazingly cool underground chapels and chambers carved out and lit up; the amazing Masurian Lake District, which boasts more than 2,000 lakes; the Slowinski Sand Dunes; Gdansk Old Town; and Warsaw Old Market Place, both of which are famous for incredible eateries and shopping.
KLM Airlines is offering travel to Krakow, Poland from three Departure Airports in the United States: Washington, D.C., San Francisco, and New York. For only $530, you can have a round trip flight to Poland and back to the U.S.
